Dr. Wojciech Golik
Dr. Golik is a numerical analyst with research papers on fast numerical solutions of differential and integral equations and on wavelet applications in electromagnetics. He has an M.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Poznan Technological University and an M.S. and Ph.D. in Mathematics from New Mexico State University. He has over 30 years of experience in teaching at the university level. He teaches a wide variety of courses including Calculus, Linear Algebra, Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, History of Mathematics, and Statistics. He conducts research projects with undergraduates in numerical analysis.
Nikhil Gupta received his B.A. in mathematics from Princeton University in 2009. He spent the 2009 academic year as a teaching fellow in mathematics at Phillips Academy in Andover, Mass. In 2016, he obtained his Ph.D. in mathematics from Indiana University in Bloomington, Ind. Gupta’s research deals with generalizations of periodic functions called automorphic functions; this area of research lies at the intersection of harmonic analysis and number theory. In addition to research, Gupta is a dedicated teacher, having taught numerous courses at the undergraduate level during his tenure as a graduate student. He looks forward to sharing his love and enthusiasm for mathematics with his students at Lindenwood.
Dr. Martin received a B.S. in applied mathematics from the University of Missouri – Rolla (now Missouri S&T) in 2004. She completed her M.S. and Ph.D. in mathematics at the University of Arkansas in 2006 and 2008, respectively. After completing her graduate studies, she served as a faculty member and administrator at Westminster College in Fulton, Mo., for nine years before joining the Lindenwood faculty in 2017. She has taught a variety of mathematics courses, ranging from Intermediate Algebra to Advanced Calculus. She is a strong proponent of active learning, particularly inquiry-based learning, and is actively engaged in undergraduate research. Besides working with students to conduct research in her own areas of geometric analysis and partial differential equations, she has led projects on topics ranging from graph theory to applied math.
Dr. Nick Wintz is a control theorist whose publications examine processes with continuous, discrete and hybrid measurements. He received his BS and MA in mathematics from Marshall University in Huntington, WV. His master’s thesis was "Eigenvalue comparisons for an impulsive boundary value problem with Sturm-Liouville boundary conditions," written under the direction of Dr. Bonita A. Lawrence. While at Marshall, he served as a Graduate Teaching and Research Assistant. He continued his doctoral work at Missouri University of Science and Technology (formally University of Missouri-Rolla) in Rolla, MO. His dissertation was “The Kalman filter on time scales” under the direction of Dr. Martin Bohner. While at Rolla, he also earned a Graduate Certificate in Financial Mathematics.
